Real Madrid Legendary Hero: Cristiano Ronaldo moves up list of Europe’s greatest ever goalscorers

The Real Madrid star was on the losing team on Sunday for the first time in 23 matches – but he did at least hit a personal milestone.

There’s no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo will have walked off the pitch on Sunday night  a bitterly disappointed man.

Real Madrid’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Valencia brough Los Blancos’ 22-game winning streak to an end – and the fact that the Portuguese star had scored a goal from the penalty spot early on will not have helped cushion the blow at all.

But to eagle-eyed stats-watchers, that goal was a crucial milestone: it moved the 29-year-old up to 287 career goals in Europe’s ‘big five’ leagues.

That means that Ronaldo is now the joint sixth-highest aggregate goalscorer of all time across the top flights of England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France, having pulled alongside South African-born English star Gordon Hodgson.
